Brimstone Hill - St. Kitts & Nevis

One of the best-preserved citadels in the Americas, Brimstone Hill is a defunct British fort and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Dubbed 'The Gibraltar of the West Indies,’ Brimstone Hill was built by African slaves during the 17th century and was the scene of a number of Anglo-French maritime battles.

Surrounded by former sugar plantations, the fort commands splendid views across the limpid Caribbean waters and is home to a rich variety of flora and fauna including vervet monkeys.
